Coming from Gentoo (fantastic Server platform), I finally managed to get a decent HP workstation at work and I was quite keen on getting *Nix installed as Running Dnyagen with 16 routers killed any Windows machine.
At first, I figured DesktopBSD would be quite nice to have, but it just wouldn’t boot.
Well, onto a windows machine, download OpenSuse 11-kde and i was in business within 2 hours.
Working with servers for so many years, i never realized how mature Linux desktop has become.
Yes, i did “meet” the occasional bug here and there but overall, a very user friendly, feature rich, solid platform.
I figured I’d register to thank the community involved in creating such a fantastic collection of software, still with a distinctive OpenSuse Character for free in the true spirit of GPL.
